Point Repair or End-to-End?

Posted by Katie Breeden on Mar 21, 2019 11:49:51 AM

Determining the right sewer rehabilitation method for a given job is not always straightforward, as identifying a solution requires evaluating a pipe’s physical environment and condition. Without properly assessing these factors, municipalities risk only partially solving a problem with point repair. Or, an equally inefficient outcome, waste resources by doing more work than necessary with end-to-end repair. While some municipalities have rehab contractors that also provide consulting services to address what type of solution is best, at the end of the day someone must make a decision on how to repair the pipes. So what should be taken into account?

The Cost of Expansion

Posted by Nicole Lygo on Oct 31, 2018 6:40:52 PM

With the possibility of more federal investment in infrastructure on the horizon, many municipal contractors are looking to increase their capabilities. American wastewater systems are rapidly degrading, so rehabilitation is one of the larger areas of growth. Depending on what type of work your business already offers, some rehabilitation methods may be easier to get into than others. For spot (point) repairs, the most popular options are CIPP spot liners (generally under four feet), mechanical point repair sleeves and grout. Each method has its strengths and weaknesses as a repair solution, and each one has variable costs in terms of initial capital and maintenance cost. Getting an idea of what different methods can cost may give you a starting point for choosing the best option for your business.

When Thorough Repair Becomes Overkill

Posted by Katie Breeden on Feb 6, 2018 1:11:05 PM

Sewer rehabilitation is resource intensive. The larger and older a sewer is, the more frequently it requires maintenance, and the more costly and time-consuming that maintenance can be. Many municipalities rely solely on end-to-end (manhole-to-manhole) rehabilitation techniques like CIPP, pipe bursting and slip-lining to repair failing lines. While end-to-end methods can repair common defects in sewer pipe, in certain situations they can be overkill and a waste of time and money. That’s where spot (or point) repairs are more useful. Because of their targeted nature, spot repairs are able to address localized defects less expensively, faster, and often with less disruption than end-to-end methods. When a single line has multiple defects, however, the decision between spot and end-to-end methods requires careful consideration.
